Handcrafted Cumbria Crystal champagne flutes featured in the new Bentayga Mulliner Bentley car

Cumbria Crystal has been awarded an exclusive contract by Bentley to produce luxury crystal champagne flutes for the new Bentayga Mulliner which is making its global debut at the Geneva motor show this week. The new flagship Bentayga model reaches new heights of interior cabin luxury and redefines the benchmark for automotive luxury.

Chris Blade – managing director of Cumbria Crystal said:

“We are proud that Bentley Mulliner placed so much faith in Cumbria Crystal by inviting us to develop and manufacture the exquisite and highly unusual champagne flutes for the new Bentayga Mullier SUV. The design teams at Mulliner were extremely supportive throughout the development process and placed complete trust in us to develop these extraordinary flutes, which come as standard. This is the beginning of an exciting ongoing collaboration, with additional products already being discussed. Bentley, Mullier and Cumbria Crystal offers an exciting fusion of luxury, engineering and British craftsmanship. These champagne flutes are only available with the car. Discerning collectors wishing to own Cumbria Crystal but not wanting to buy a new car just yet can visit our website and explore the exquisite Collections available there.”

 

Notes

Cumbria Crystal is the last producer of completely hand-blown and hand-cut, full-lead English crystal in the United Kingdom. Using only traditional glassmaking processes, the small team of 22 highly skilled artisans are committed to making superb crystal of the highest quality, using techniques and processes that have hardly changed since the Roman era. Set in Ulverston, a small town in the beautiful English Lake District, visitors are welcome to watch the choreographed alchemy of glass blowing, browse the Factory Shop and on occasion even try making some glass themselves.
